WordPress users around the world will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first WordPress edition by organizing several meet-ups across the world. The anniversary falls on May 27, 2013.
The meetups will take place on 27th May in many cities. If you are interested in meeting up with local WordPress enthusiasts then look up this list of meetups being planned.
If you find none in your city, you can even plan create your own meetup for your city or town.
Why are meetups important?
Meetups are very important for WordPress communities. Especially in India, where a lot of WordCamps have started to take place but very few small WordPress meetups are happenings. Being an open-source project no company is going to put a lot of resources in marketing events to get local developers and bloggers together Hence such meetups organized from ground up are very important.
I will be attending the meetup in Mumbai and hopefully will meet some fascinating people from the WordPress community in the city.
